    Our team has used a 3M 2-part epoxy for the past two years and it has worked great. I would advise against the superglue and water mixture, superglue reacts with water.

    Repairing it only requires cutting a patch and glueing it into place, next to no time at all. Our 2013-2014 car has held up fine, the only damage being small holes from people slipping while using...

    RCV states in their catalogue that their axles are limited to 12 degrees, so I assume most housings designed around their tripods are similar. Those torque numbers are about what we see when dumping...

    The initial purpose of the thread was just to obtain some technical information about the Wavetrac, not to ask for suspension advice. This is why I'm appearing biased, I was already decided on...

    That is the reason I came into this thread with the Wavetrac in mind. The only other option that met that prerequisite was a clutch-style lsd and they are too expensive for our budget. As for using...
